STANDING OUT WITH LOVING HANDS
Our staff utilizes a nurturing proactive approach to emotional and spiritual care and is also much more likely to notice and address any problems immediately. There is a smaller staff-to-resident ratio which insures thorough care and quicker assistance within a loving family oriented environment.
We also employ animal therapy as a means of improving social, emotional and cognitive functioning as studies have shown that care givers who work in conjunction with animals have been perceived as less threatening and able to bond and increase rapport between patient and care giver.
We combat global issues while enlightening and empowering our youth, in our Edible Forest which offers practicality and teaches us how to live interdependently without exhausting our resources.

"I am now a young adult who took advantage of the Loving Hands Youth Empowerment Series. As someone who grew up in foster care, I had not previously been taught the importance of Credit or a Savings Account, How to complete a job application/ college application, and I am ashamed to say that I could not successfully do laundry without damaging my clothing and could not prepare a healthy meal! These are life skills that all youth need and I was able to acquire with Loving Hands Children’s Home. I sincerely Thank You. This program series is an asset to youth."
